BDK:Der, this a bunch of nonsense. You simply don't know what you're talking about. Flood geology was rejected long before there were "funded" scientists.
At this point, while you say you don't want a flame, war, you keep asking for one. This whole post in the main, was pretty out there. I suggest you refrain from further comment on the issue until you have researched it.
T:Maybe I am misunderstanding post 994 and derheimwill will correct me; but the latter sentences (requote coming up) in it seemed to indicate a (partial? grudging?) acceptance of the mainstream science position that no evidence exists for a global deluge and that it has been searched for fairly and open-mindedly:
der also from post 994:Most people doing creation research nowadays are doing so for un-scientific reasons - to convince religious groups to not listen to the non-religious research. As a Christian, I find this disturbing. It leads to people parroting the preacher and convincing themselves they are saved (because they know the right words to say), when they are not.
T:Am I right here der, or have I misunderstood you?
Bdk suggested that no scientists were funded before the "rejection" of flood geology (200 years ago). I chose not to respond. As to your specific question, I am not accepting the "mainstream" position, merely acknowledging it. I agree I need to do more research, if I am to continue defending my position on this thread.
